Save Our Leisure Centres
Petition Background (Preamble):
PUBLIC - Built and refurbished with public money, our leisure centres belong to Southampton's people.
AWARD WINNING - The Tories want to privatise the centres despite the fact they're award winning!
PRIVATISATION - The leisure centres being privatised will mean prices will go up, standards will drop and staff's jobs will come under threat.
PURE IDEOLOGY - Conservative council leader Alec Samuels has made it clear that he wants to privatise facilities as a matter of priciple.
(Southampton Labour Party, John Denham MP or Alan Whitehead MP may contact you with the information you provide.)
We the undersigned oppose the privatisation of Southampton's leisure centres - the Quays, Bitterne Leisure Centre and Chamberlayne Leisure Centre - each of which makes a profit for the city and belongs to the people of Southampton.
We demand that the Conservative-run Council ensures these award-winning facilities remain in public hands and that they continue to run for the benefit of Southampton.
